John Cena Announces Upcoming Retirement at WWE Money in the Bank

John Cena stunned the wrestling world by announcing his retirement at the WWE Money in the Bank show in Toronto.

He’s not done yet, though. Cena said he would compete one more time in the 2025 Royal Rumble, Elimination Chamber, and WrestleMania events.

After the show, Cena told the press that he would appear at 35 to 40 shows in his final year of competition.

Here’s a question: Will Cena attempt to win one more World title? He is currently tied with Ric Flair at the top of the all-time list with 16 World championships.


Drew McIntyre opened the show by winning the men’s Money in the Bank ladder match. His opponents were Andrade, Jey Uso, LA Knight, Chad Gable, and Carmelo Hayes.

Earlier in the week, McIntyre said he would win the briefcase, cash it in during the show, and walk out of Toronto as World champion.

So when Damien Priest defended the World title against Seth Rollins, he was literally looking over his shoulder for McIntyre to arrive.

Sure enough, McIntyre crashed the match and turned it into a Triple Threat match.

Now wait a minute … you don’t think CM Punk is going to show up and ruin everything for McIntyre again, do you?

Yes, he will!

Punk arrived and took McIntyre out of the match with several chairshots and a shot with the title belt. Priest hit the South of Heaven chokeslam on McIntyre to retain the championship.


Nobody expected the women’s ladder match to steal the show. The six combatants channeled ECW with brutal moves off and onto the ladders. Chelsea Green took an insane plunge through a pair of tables.

Tiffany Stratton emerged from the wreckage with the briefcase. Stratton and Green earned a standing ovation along with opponents Zoey Stark, Naomi, Lyra Valkyria, and Iyo Sky.

Sami Zayn retained the Intercontinental title in an upset over the previously unstoppable Bron Breakker.

In the main event, The Bloodline (Solo Sikoa, Jacob Fatu & Tama Tonga) defeated WWE champion Cody Rhodes, Kevin Owens & Randy Orton.

Fatu’s first WWE match was the main event of a pay-per-view. Solo pinned Rhodes in the middle of the ring, so he could be getting a title shot at SummerSlam on Aug. 3 in Cleveland.

Remember, Gunther and Nia Jax will get title shots at SummerSlam against Priest and Bayley because they won King & Queen of the Ring.
